What the heck is an assault weapon, anyway?

“Assault weapon” is a made-up, unicorn term used by people who don’t know anything about guns. When anti-gun individuals talk about “assault weapons,” they’re usually referring to semi-automatic rifles. These are just modern sporting rifles that shoot one bullet at a time.

Proponents of the incessantly proposed assault weapons ban, however, believe that adding a couple of cosmetic features to semi-automatic rifles cause the bullets come out faster. These additional features, they argue, turn the rifle into an “assault weapon.” Obviously this is untrue.

The Left purposefully conflates the term “assault weapon” with semi-automatic guns to manipulate people into being comfortable with the idea of banning semi-automatic firearms.

The bottom line: cosmetic features don’t make guns “shootier.” Not even close.
